Sweet, chocolaty, meringue-based sandwich cookies filled with a smooth and silky raspberry chocolate ganache.
I always have the best intentions of accomplishing everything that is on my to-do list. Especially the night before. The night before I’m supposed to get it all done, I go to bed “knowing” that tomorrow is the day!
Wanna know what I did? I made Chocolate Raspberry Macarons. Something that was NOT on my to-do list!
In fact, I did none of those must-do things on my list. All I wanted was to melt some chocolate, create a few delicious macarons, and forget about renewing my license, paying my taxes, dusting behind the TV, and doing the bills.
Oooooh, chocolate! How can one think about paying taxes when there’s melted chocolate in their face? Seriously?!
I recently asked a food editor what their favorite baking chocolate was, and without hesitation, she said, Ghirardelli. Oh sweet!, I said. Mine, too!
There is no other baking chip that tastes that good, and that can melt as well as Ghirardelli’s. Scouts honor. Containing 60% cacao chips, Ghirardelli baking ingredients provide bakers with incredible options for all their baking needs. Trust me, I’ve tried them all. This is it. This is the chocolate that won’t let you down. Ever.
The easy melting, and the result of a perfect, smooth texture is what stands out the most. With Ghirardelli, you don’t have to be on edge, wondering if that melting chocolate will clump up or dry up. Made with a blend of quality ingredients, Ghirardelli Baking Chips deliver. Also? The sweet and rich taste doesn’t hurt… Not.at.all.
Before adding in the raspberries, I ate that melted chocolate with a spoon. Just kidding! Actually, I ate it by tilting the bowl and slurping it all in. Yah… I went there. Couldn’t resist.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Time to make the macarons, right?! Hey. Your Valentine will love ’em!
Go grab those Ghirardelli Baking Chips and let’s do this! Don’t be scurred. Macarons really are so easy to make. Just follow my directions and all will be well. I promise.
